Employers can receive £3,000 for new apprentices of any age who join their organisation from 1 April 2021 to 30 September 2021.
You can apply for incentive payments for these apprentices from 1 June 2021 to 30 November 2021.
Employers with apprentices who have an employment start date between 1 April 2021 and 30 September 2021 and who also have a practical period (training) start date between 1 April 2021 and 30 November 2021 are eligible for an incentive payment.
You can apply for the incentive payment through the ‘Finances’ section in your apprenticeship service account (which can be set up here), under ‘Your hire a new apprentice payments’.
